The Ruhr area at first hand - Duisburg-Meiderich Youth Hostel for Industrial Culture
Duisburg-Meiderich Youth Hostel lies where there were once smoking chimneys - in the newly designed North Duisburg Landscape Park, which today is a place of relaxation, fun and adventure. School groups, conference guests and families who want to experience the Ruhr at first hand are welcome in the former administration building of the ThyssenKrupp steelworks.
The North Duisburg Landscape Park is now an area of activity. Surrounded by the relics of the old Ruhr region, industrial culture is naturally also a topic of school trips and trips for children and teenagers in Duisburg-Meiderich: boys and girls armed with film and photographic equipment go out in search of unusual subjects, climb in the former ore bunkers of the smelting works or go on a treasure hunt in the area equipped with GPS devices.
Stay in extraordinary comfort and enjoy an unusual ambience - even conference guests enjoy staying here. The historical building offers modern rooms and a professional conference atmosphere. And after a productive day, you can experience either "live history" or go walking and cycling through the Ruhr area.
Blast furnaces, gasometers and winding towers dominated the face of the Ruhr for decades. These days, you can experience real adventure in the Landscape Park Duisburg-Nord - even at night, when the disused industrial giants are immersed in a fantastic light.
